Mumbai: A Mumbai Magistrate court on Monday extended the judicial custody of former media baron Peter Mukerjea till December 28 in the Sheena Bora murder case even as he moved an application seeking homemade food in jail on account of his ailments.

"The judicial custody is extended till December 28," ordered magistrate RV Adone after Peter's 14-day custody granted on December 1, expired on Monday.

Meanwhile, the application moved by Mukerjea's lawyer Kushal Mor, sought home food for Peter in jail as he is a senior citizen, having heart ailments and has been taking medicine to lower his cholesterol.

"In CBI custody it was being ensured that he gets proper healthy diet, now that he is in jail we need to ensure that he gets proper diet according to his medical needs," Mor told the court.

However, CBI special prosecutor Kavita Patil said jail officials always take care of their inmates.

Magistrate Adone is likely to pass an order on Peter's application on Tuesday.

Peter, 59, husband of prime accused Indrani Mukerjea, was arrested on November 19 for his alleged role in the murder case and was in CBI custody.

He has been kept at the high-security Arthur Road Jail, where other two accused in the case -- Sanjeev Khanna and Shyamvar Rai -- are also lodged.

He was later taken to Delhi by CBI for conducting a polygraph test on him and brought back to Mumbai by month-end.

Sheena (24) was allegedly strangled in a car and then her body burnt and dumped in a forest in Raigad, about 84 kms from Mumbai. Indrani (43), her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her ex-driver Shyamvar Rai have been charge sheeted in the case. The victim was Indrani's daughter from an earlier relationship.

CBI, while maintaining that financial transaction was the motive behind the murder of Sheena, had earlier said that Peter, during his interrogation, disclosed investments of crores of rupees made by him and Indrani and is expecting information from Interpol on the details of an account opened

by Indrani in a bank in Hong Kong.
